  • limera1n 10/11/10 jailbreaks all devices?


    Alright, I chatted with geohot earlier today but was sworn to secrecy - although it seems the news made its way out anyway, so geohot said go ahead and cover it here.

    geohot is prepped to launch limera1n (we covered the possibility of such a software months ago) on 10/11/10 - the 1 year anniversary of the release of blackra1n.



    p0sixninja, who's work on SHAtter has been vital in making it happen, has already set an ETA of 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM for greenpois0n, his jailbreak for all A4 devices (iPhone 4, iPad, and iPod Touch 4G). geohot now has returned from "retirement" and announced a release the day after greenpois0n's slated release date - with a jailbreak that would work on /all/ iDevices.

    The two jailbreaks use separate exploits, although greenpois0n uses a new one, SHAtter, while geohot has used the exploit in limera1n before (and yah, it still works). geohot hasn't made an official announcement anywhere, so there's still the off chance someone will randomly talk him out of releasing, but it's looking pretty solid. There is some talk of p0sixninja even using geohot's exploit in greenpois0n, saving SHAtter for a future jailbreak, but it doesn't look like p0sixninja is interested in it, as it'd push back release dates even more.

    So... either way, looks like all you folks out there waiting for Game Center, AirSharing, AND Cydia... you'll get your cake (pie) come Sunday and Monday. And apparently you'll need a big plate.

      I've got a question:

      As for chronic implementing GeoHot's exploit to save SHAtter for another time, I don't really understand. Won't the next gen of iDevices have a new bootrom anyway? Meaning that both exploits will get patched regardless - leaving SHAtter wasted if it doesn't get released now. Or will SHAtter still work on next gen iDevices, even if it has a different bootrom? Maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong, I was just wondering this.

      He only started working on releasing his lime after the DevTeam announced their ETA. The reason no one's happy about his announcement is that despite being similar, the implementation of the exploit is different and could potentially be useful in JB'ing future idevices...
      Now Apple will just patch both exploits right after :/ :/

      What i dont get is why anyone is releasing a bootrom exploit? I mean there are still plenty of userland jailbreaks available and one is coming out for 4.2 so why bother releasing Shatter now? Bootrom exploits should both be held of untill really necessary. The longer theyre kept hidden the more jailbreakable devices apple will keep making.

      Guys... Please have some sense!!!
      Greenpous0n ONLY works with the A4 (4th gen) devices and NOT any of the older A3 chips...
      LimeRa1n WILL work with all of the A4 and A3 devices so it It is a more universal jailbreak...

      To all of you that own an iPhone 4: use greenpois0n... Take advantage of the stability(I hope) and useability of the jailbreak! And what about all of us who don't have an iPhone 4? We will use LimeRa1n as most devices come pre loaded with 4.1 or 4.x we can't downgrade to 3.1.2 to use sn0wbreeze, redsn0w or pawnage tool! so we are THANKFULL for LimeRa1n!

      Eitherway be THANKFUL that there are teams out there and people who do make jailbreaks! And I'm pretty dam sure that none of you can make a jailbreak either!

      GeoHot is being a huge douche by releasing limera1n. Why? Because limera1n uses an exploit that doesnt require an a4 chip thus being useable on any idevice in the future, iphone 4, ipad 2, ect. He should allow proxy to roll out SHAtter for this gen of the phones and save up limera1n for the next.

      And what are all us with non A4 models going to do?

      He might be... But I could be dead or you could be ***? We don't know the answer so it would be better to just not speculate...

      Either wait for 4.2 and the userland jailbreak, or sell your device and buy a 4th gen. I only had to put in $50 extra to buy my 32gb iPhone 4 as an early upgrade after selling my 3GS. It's not worth supporting a few old devices if it ruins the chance of a jailbreak for all 5th gen devices

      A few old devices? More than 70% of the jailbreak community i would guess. Probably more.

      I'm not sure if that really answers my question. Will SHAtter work on next gen iDevices (iPhone 5, etc) even if Apple change the bootrom? Like how they revised the 3GS to a new bootrom after it was pwned4life.

      I would just say he is a truly gifted hacker as is everyone who supplies us with JB/Unlocked iDevices. No need to call a person an "attention whore". It adds absolutely nothing to a conversation and detracts from the good news.

      Just my 2 pennies.

      Grow a brain and read the posts both here and on twitter!! People are grateful for the exploits...what everyone is pissed about is the wasting of a potentially useful future exploit for when the next Gen idevices are released!!
